SRI LANKA: Officials Halt the Progress of Religious Activities

Source: The National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka

VOM recently received numerous incident reports from Sri Lanka outlining concerns involving two churches. On July 21st, Divisional Secretariat Officials went to investigate a church during the pastor’s absence, taking pictures and refusing to answer the caretaker’s questions regarding who they were and the purpose of their visit. The officials then threatened the church members, stating that the continuance of their religious worship would result in them being taken to local police. The following day, a couple of congregation members had inquired at the Divisional Secretariat’s office about the incident, only to be threatened again if they did not comply with instruction.
